Help Laura Fight Stage 4 Breast Cancer

At the end of October, 2020, my sister Laura’s world was shattered when she was rushed to the ER with severe back pain and was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer that had metastasized to the spine, back, pelvic area, lymph nodes and liver.  At this diagnosis. 

Laura’s world first shattered when, several years ago, her husband of 10 years left her.  Laura was devastated, she loved her husband so much.

Laura was finally beginning to start living again.   

However, she felt her world shattered a 2nd time with her diagnosis of Stage 4 Breast Cancer.  And, since her diagnosis, Laura has been admitted to the ER several times and has undergone radiation therapy for fear of spinal injuries.  Laura’s cancer is too far gone and has spread throughout her body.   

Laura had been experiencing pains in her back over the last several years.  However, the pain would come for a few days and then be absent for quite a while.  So, as a lot of us would do, she just attributed the pain to other things such as, heavy lifting, too much exercise or too much emotional stress.  Needless to say, she did not go to get herself checked out.

Laura is a devoted mother to her 4 children and a loving and adoring grandmother to her 3 grandchildren. 

Laura is very creative and enjoys making new and unique craft items.  She loves reading, gaining knowledge through books/documentaries and loves sharing that knowledge. She enjoys board games, travelling, shopping. Her most treasured moments are times she spends with her family.

Although there is no cure for Laura’s diagnosis based on standard treatment, she is looking at alternative treatments and praying for a Miracle. Faced with the options of more radiation followed by chemotherapy, Laura decided to try Chelation Therapy instead.  This therapy is only performed through private clinics and Laura is hoping it will provide her with a better quality of life for the length of time that she has left. 

As if dealing with this terrible illness enough, the COVID-19 pandemic creates its own set of challenges as they try to access medical facilities for regular blood tests, x-rays, scans and her bi-weekly Chelation therapy.   

Laura and her family will have countless medical appointment expenses ahead of them in addition to the regular living expenses.  Therefore, this GoFundMe page is being created in an attempt to offer some much-needed support and financial security, to Laura and her family during this devastating time. Our hope and pray is that YOU will find it in your heart to help us inspire, encourage and ease this financial strain on Laura and her family.   Please join with us in helping Laura and her family deal with this horrific disease. 

Thank you all so much in advance for your compassion and generosity and any financial assistance you are able to provide to Laura and her Family. 

God bless you always.
